The Nurses Association of New Brunswick has announced that the registration process for internationally educated nurses from 14 countries will be expedited. This will cut the time to become registered to work in the province from 12-18 months to as few as 14 days for nurses from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Hong Kong, India, Philippines, United Arab Emirates, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Morocco, and Lebanon. The association will continue to authenticate identification, initial registration, and education to mitigate the risk of fraudulent nurses entering the healthcare system. Some nurses may be required to complete additional training. All nurses must complete an entry-to-practice examination.
